Peak fall foliage is making its way out of the North Country, down and across New York State. However, brilliant foliage can still be found throughout the Adirondacks. Tupper Lake, North Creek and Saranac Lake report 100 percent color change, at peak or just past. In the Catskills, near-peak to peak conditions are reported, with 80 to 90 percent of the leaves changed. The Capital-Saratoga region ranges from midpoint to peak.
After a slower-than-usual start, conditions in the central and western parts of the state are advancing. In the Niagara Frontier region, Letchworth State Park reports foliage approaching peak conditions with 75 percent color change. The Finger Lakes region is reporting 45 to 50 percent change, ranging from 35 percent in Rochester to 60 percent in Chemung County. For the complete New York foliage report, call (800) 225-5697.
